2. Adding a comparator

We now take you through the process of adding an 'oXygen' enabled DeltaXML comparator, using the DITA Compare 5.0 as our example.

Note: The installation process searches for the main product Jar file in the DeltaXML product install directory you specify, any download variant of the product can be used for this - except the .NET version.

  1. Now the oXygen Adaptor is installed, you are ready to configure it for the Dita Compare product; to start this, select
    DeltaXML > Configure Compare... from the menu bar. The following Comparison Product Confirmation form wil appear:
